Absolutely stunning view! There are several entrances to walk up the mountain. It is about a 10-15 minute walk at a normal pace. Steep areas which requires trainers or at the very least flat shoes. No heels! There are simple info points at the top...More

There is a steep climb to get to the trail, but the walk is quite easy on the trail itself. The views of the city and mountains around it are well worth the exercise. You can save yourselves some effort by using an elevator through...More

Going up behind old town you pass many gardeners. It is super peaceful where ever you start. It is like a canopy walk but instead you are above the city in some perfect Hobbiton type landscape.

Walk along the trail provides great views of the valley. The walk is a nice way t spend a quite afternoon. We walked about 2.5 km along the trail and did not reach the end, not sure how long it is.

A little difficult to find the way on to the walk, quite a steep climb (steps) up to the walk but both were well worth the effort. Great views over the whole city and surrounding mountains. Easy walking, interesting allotments and tobacco at the sides...More

A very pleasant walk along small canal. Trail is flat, doesn't require full hiking gear. Offers great views of mountains. Takes 10-15 minutes to get to from city center. Not a "must-see" but a good activity if you have some time to kill.
